Hi! My name is Stef, and welcome to The Flamingo Teacher! I’m so glad you stopped by to check out my blog. I am a proud Mom of three beautiful children who keep me on my toes, wife of an outstanding and supportive husband, and first grade teacher to a wonderful class of little learners. In my free time (let’s be real-I don’t have much), I enjoy cooking, shopping, and planning. I wanted to start a blog to share my tips and tools for teaching as well as life in general. I am so blessed to have this opportunity to create my own teaching and lifestyle blog.
You might be wondering how I came up with the name The Flamingo Teacher. Well, the name has a double entendre. I saw this quote about teaching like a flamingo. “Teach like a flamingo. Spend time with your flock. Find the right balance. Be flexible. Don’t get your feathers ruffled over little things. Be fabulous!” After reading this quote, I thought, that is the kind of teacher I aspire to be.
The second meaning is that if you follow that quote above, teacher or not, you are on your way to your best life! I strongly believe in the importance of spending time with your family (your flock). I think we also all need to find a good balance between, work, family, and personal interests. We all need to be flexible, because life can throw you some curveballs and resilience is key. Don’t let the little things bother you in life (easier said than done)!
I hope you will join me in my blogging journey as we grow and learn to live the fabulous life together!
